LeBron LeBack in Cleveland

LeBron James :: AP

LeBron James returned to Cleveland for his first game with the Cavs in four years, only to lose to the Knicks and their much-mocked Triangle Offense. Justin "Crazy Eyes" Bieber and Taylor "Bandwagon" Swift were among the celebs in attendance. After his famous pregame chalk toss (which someone wisely cashed in on), James got down to business and scored 17 points with 5 rebounds and 4 assists in the loss. Follow SI's new LeBlog for all your LeBron coverage.

Happy Halloween

It is Halloween and these kids dressed up as Richard Sherman and Erin Andrews is the best thing I've seen yet. The Wall Street Journal has more great sports-themed costumes for kids (the Johnny Manziel kid is tremendous). Also worth checking out: Best NHL Costumes,  Athletes in Costume, best sports pumpkins and the Marlin Man outfits.

Doc Rivers and Larry Bird :: Corbis

This shot taken during a 1987 Hawks-Celtics game shows an angry Rivers about to destroy Larry Bird. Cooler heads prevailed and the two never came to blows, though Rivers looks pretty terrifying here (as does Bird's mullet). For more classic sports photos, visit the SI Vault on Twitter.

Run DMC (Mavs style)

Dirk Nowitzki, Monta Ellis and Chandler Parsons have 'DMC' in their initials, which is a plenty good reason to cover Can't Be Stopped.
